Crisis is Opportunity, Even With President Trump

In this article, Ellen Moyer explores the environmental doomsday that might unfold as Trump unleashes his assault on the environment.

Making America Wait Again On Climate

Making America Wait Again On Climate

Writing in theguardian, George Monbiot begins his January 19th article with the phrase “make America wait again”.

Carbon Insanity! Trudeau Now Cheerleader-in-Chief for Oilsands

Carbon Insanity! Trudeau Now Cheerleader-in-Chief for Oilsands

It turns out to be two pipelines — Kinder Morgan and Enbridge Line 3 — and the LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) project in BC for a national carbon price. And so, carbon insanity prevails as Trudeau becomes the cheerleader-in-chief of the fossil fuel industry in Canada. Source: Canadian Business, July 21, 2016. In 2012 Trudeau […]
